I had so much fun with that DoodleFactory 'Final Frontier' set from Starving Artistamps last week, that I wanted to make a couple more!
I really liked how the background turned out on my 'Peace On Earth' card turned out, so I played with the sponged background again. It's actually really easy to do one you know how. Before applying the sponged background, I inked up a couple of the planets with Versamark ink and stamps them onto the piece watercolor paper. Then I applied Kaleidoscope embossing powder and heat set it. For the sponged colors, I applied a layer of Broken China blue from Distress Inks. Then I applied Buckaroo Blue from SU over the Broken China, leaving some of it showing through. Last, I applied some Black Soot, sparingly, to the edges of the piece and into the middle of the card, careful to leave the light spots still show. After I added all the planets and moons, I added some 'stars' with some Star Dust Stickles. Now the whole piece looks like outer space and the milky way!
